Classical Chinese prose and poetry flourished prodigiously in Hong Kong since its opening up in the 19th century, witnessing the growth of poetry societies and the coming to the scene renowned literati who had left us with enormous amount of treasurable writings. The torch passes on, this classical literary tradition still strives in strength today.

On this special occasion, the Chinese University of Hong Kong Library joins the Chinese Language and Literature Department to organise this exhibition “A splendid century of classical Chinese prose and poetry in Hong Kong”.
